  • Memphis, Graceland and Elvis

    Memphis, Graceland and Elvis

    We went to Memphis to visit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. What an amazing place. And, while we were there we took a side trip to visit Graceland, Elvis Presley’s home.

    It is one of those things you must do in Memphis. Graceland has been beautifully maintained throughout the years and looks exactly like it was when Elvis lived there. As you stroll through the house and the impeccably manicured grounds, you can’t help but think about what it must have been like in it’s heyday.
    So, next time you find yourself in Memphis, check out Graceland!

  • Welcome to Midlife Southwest Airlines!

    Welcome to Midlife Southwest Airlines!

    As self-proclaimed experts, we consider 40 to be the age where midlife begins… approximately.  We don’t define midlife as the halfway point in life. Instead, we think of midlife as middle third of a long life. Midlifers are well beyond the growing pains of childhood and adolescence. They’ve rounded life’s learning curve in their 20s and 30s and are now ready to embrace who they are and begin living life to the fullest! This yeas, […]
